This recipe is from the home kitchen of Mrs. Thomas, a family friend from Kerala who actually used to refer to it as “Bombay Curry.” Upon further exploration I was rather amused to understand further details of this name. The dish is made with supposedly “new-fangled” ingredients such as tomatoes instead of tamarind, hence relegated to Bombay rather than Kerala. No matter the name, the general flavor profile is delicate and herby and makes a perfect dish with steamed rosemata rice.
